How to Upload or Attach in Bb Learn

You may need to upload or attach files in Bb Learn for assignments and discussion board posts. Before you begin to upload a file to Bb Learn, or if you are receiving errors while trying to upload material, make sure that you have the most recent version of Java installed on your computer. While the example in this tutorial uses an assignment as an example, the same process can be followed to upload files to the discussion board.

Once in your assignment, read all instructions carefully.  To upload a file to attach to your assignment, click on Browse My Computer.
